Like many in the tech industry, Mark Gainey, CEO of run-mapping app Strava, used his position to condemn President Trump’s immigrant ban this week. Unlike anyone else, however, Gainey did so in his own peculiar native tongue: the language of routes.

What Gainey’s (somewhat misguided) effort lacked in clarity, however, it more than made up for in creativity. And whether we’re black, white, man, woman, natural-born citizen or refugee, it’s good to be reminded that our hearts all cry out as for the same thing: creenom.
